Vineyards

It is impossible to make high quality wine without fertile soil and proper micro-climate. So, we are proud of having our own vineyards located in every micro-zone of Kakheti region - very heart of Georgian wine-making, up to 400 ha in total. According to the recommendations of Badagoni major enologist Doctor Donato Lanati, there is permanently conducted control and analysis of our vinyards as with the means of Badagoni local laboratory as well as International research centre "Enosis Meraviglia". Accurately cherished vineyard has the highest value for the wine-maker and is the first step towards making the good wine.
